Amanda Garrett

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


I am enchanted by the new collection of bridal gowns from Amanda Garrett. They have the stunningly beautiful uncomplicated lines to them but the most beautiful use of lace (creating gowns with names like “The Snowflake Gown” with intricate beading). Again the simplicity is the perfect choice for a bride who wants an elegant, understated look. The small details just add an extra sense of glamour.

As I said of her last collection- Amanda designs with personality, but with elegance and grace.

Nicole and Daniel’s Malibu Engagement Session

by | Bride, Engagements


Nicole and Daniel

Krashing Motions Photography in California sent over this sunny beach side engagement shoot which seems just the ticket to share at the height of what is hopefully a sunny Saturday wherever you are in the world! Malibu always reminds me of Summer- richly hued pastel colours, the sunshine and the wind in one’s hair! This is the engagement of Nicole and Daniel.
